Thanks for letting me and this music into your ears.

8:25 PM, August 8th, 2018
Whoa, love this Meredith Howard/Maxwell Davis tune. Could the upcoming Wayne Mcghie be considered a mini Can-Con cram?

8:42 PM, August 8th, 2018
Renny G (host)
No he's too mini....but thanks for reminding me to mark it off with a little maple leaf.

8:48 PM, August 8th, 2018
Hope moving to Sunday is good for you, Renny! Liked this show very much...just nice old comfy blues!

Thanks Daragh. I'm sorry you won't be able to mark your papers at school to the strains of R&R. It is moving to Sunday too. I may spontaneously combust playing the devil's music on a Sunday.

Actually I've been put into the D.J.P.P.: The disc jockey protection program. Rumour has it that some jazz purists have a hit out on me. When I did a fill-in on In A Mellow Tone, a couple of months ago, I broke some cardinal rules. I played some Tupelo Chain Sex, Ferlin Husky's band playing a cover of Caravan and I played a ska version of Ellington's classic (and theme for the show) In A Mellow Tone. I'm not tempting fate, I've been relocated to Sunday.

Just joshin' ya all! Taking over Mighty Dave Sampson's time slot is formidable. Those are some big shoes to fill. I loved his show The Sixites.. Dave has the knowledge, the passion, the dedication and it showed in each and every show. I hope I can do as well on Sunday nights. Wish me luck.

another great show, renny... regardless of when it originally airs, On Demand makes sure it's there for anybody, any time... you'll be a great fit on a sunday night!
